Vincent Enyeama’s Name Surprisingly Appears in African Best XI

The name of former Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has been seen in The Sun Football all-time African Best XI list.

The former Nigeria captain is arguably Nigeria’s most successful stopper following his appearance in five Nations Cup tournaments in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2013.

The 36-year-old was also among the squads that played for Nigeria at 2002, 2010 and 2014 World Cup tournaments.

Enyeama, who has a total of 101 caps for the Super Eagles, and was between the sticks when Nigeria won the 2013 AFCON in South Africa, was listed alongside Rigobert Song, Lucas Radebe and Samuel Kuffour.

Just retired, four-time Africa Footballer of the Year, Samuel Eto’o; and five-time Africa Footballer of the year, Yaya Toure are the other players who made the list.
